Nestled in the beautiful village of Hutton-le-Hole, in the heart of the North York Moors National Park, the museum offers a unique glimpse of the past. For half a century we’ve conserved some of Ryedale’s most magnificent bits of heritage for future generations to enjoy. Our atmospheric buildings and collections, spread over six acres, tell a story about a rural way of life from the Iron Age to the 1950s. So come and explore our friendly museum and enjoy a great day out for all the family!

Francesca Simon Dyptch

Navigations

  • 25 July — 13 September 2015

In her debut show outside London, Francesca Simon, the painter and print-maker will display her series entitled ‘Navigations’, a tribute to Francesca’s 30-year relationship with the ‘quiet moors of her beloved Yorkshire’, which originally inspired her distinctive style as an artist.

Although Francesca now also works in London, where she is represented by Beardsmore Gallery, her new exhibition draws on this early influence, reflecting the North York Moors’ muted and eloquent colours, and its layered topography and archaeology.
